    Exactly! Compare words that both POTUS's said to illustrate said narcissism.

    better pay attention to why 81 million voted against Trump.

    Obama, as you know will not be a candidate.

    I believe the speech was touting his accomplishments..
    just like Trump did.

    Oh wait... he tucked tail and ran off to Florida with virtually no one in attendance.

    Now even his "Proud Boys" are calling him a coward

    I don't know if you live near Indian country, but here's the deal: for every square inch of ground out here in the west you can find someone to whom it's "sacred." Usually, those people are found when word of development or resource extraction starts getting around. I've seen this movie many times now; it's nothing but radical environmentalism dressed up as native American rights to appeal to a slightly different audience.

    And, if you just want to go the raw numbers route, that's a pretty small crowd compared with the people who would have benefitted directly and indirectly from Keystone XL.

    It’s golden sacred to many tribes. Like payment for access golden sacred.

    IMO

    The Indians on the east coast pave their lands and put up casinos. The only thing sacred to them is the dollar bill.

    Like a lot of things that might be deemed good for the collective there is always someone/some group on the short end of it. I wouldn't want it running thru my neighborhood regardless of how many jobs it supports or how it impacts the price of gas.

    Ah yes, the best revenge on the white man--take his dollars through capitalism. I've always wondered why more tribes couldn't get that figured out.

    Hey, when you get right down to it everyone is probably a NIMBY on some issue or another. I get that.

    And all that has what to do with the level of Narcissism that Obama had over every other US President? :scratch

    Wasn’t he a member of a native tribe in Kenya? Did they ever identify which tribe his father was from?

    Outgoing president usually make speeches touting there accomplishments.

    Unless your skinking off to Florida as a failed president

    Evertime I " quote a source" you blow it off as " from the Liberal Media"...

    not everyone follows only Right Wing media...

    I'm just saying ( admitently not very clearly)
    the "middle" that shifted left cost Trump the election... in no small part due to his narcissistic personality disorder
